Mathews had the #1 independent single throughout most of Europe with 'United We Fall' by Heather Myles and JJ Johns. He produced, played all the instruments and sang all the bgvs (the artists sang lead). The project was recorded, mixed and mastered at Tikitown studios in Mill Valley, Calif. This record was also top 20 worldwide (majors and independents) for airplay. "We are currently developing artists with amazing songs and voices in the hopes of providing the world with more #1s. Nothing against major labels but we feel if you are not independent you are dependent. Seeing our indie projects succeed is more rewarding to us than any of our past glories through majors," says Mathews.

Scott's productions with The Rock n Roll Soldiers ( ) are being released worldwide on Atlantic Records' new imprint, East-West Records. Scott discovered this band when they were teenagers. The mighty and elusive Durocs (Ron Nagle and Scott) are filming a segment for an upcoming documentary on the quintessential '70s San Francisco band/circus The Tubes, at Tikitown. Ron and Scott wrote some of the band's best known songs and will be spilling some big beans in this tell-all interview. The Durocs plan to make the Michael Jackson trial look like small potatoes with their scandalous recollections of The Tubes. .

The red hot band out of Wilmington, North Carolina that Huey Lewis discovered, Bender, is currently laying down tracks with Scott for their debut release. The buzz on these guys is getting big, fast. The word on the streets of Sausalito is that these guys know how to live well and that rock stardom is going to suit them to a tee . . .

He also produced 'Matt Wilson' who has the lead role in Tony Award winning Billy Joel / Twyla Tharp hit broadway show, Movin' Out. Wilson is a singer/songwriter in his own right and is releasing this on an independent label. Mathews recently finished producing 'Karen Lehner' for her new release on Grey Mause/Universal. Van Dyke Parks and Steve Nieve have been collaborating with Scott on recent proejcts. Mathews also wrote songs for the critically acclaimed new Robert Cray release on Sanctuary, "20". Rolling Stone Magazine (and many other industry publications) has hailed this work to be the best of Crays' career.
Mathews is off to New Zealand for some recording in August then back to Mill Valley, CA for the remainder of 2005 producing projects with his chief engineer at Tikitown, Tom Luekens.
